Description Kai Engert (:kaie) 2013-11-20 14:58:09 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1032770 +++

When using NSS shared DB with Mozilla (actived by setting environment variable NSS_DEFAULT_DB_TYPE=sql), memory allocators are being mixed in system sqlite code, and we crash (or we malfunction).

This is fixed upstream in Mozilla 28, using a makefile patch.

I propose to pick up the patch in RHEL's ESR24.

I might say yes principle to have the right code but in practice it would have no effect.  We don't support the slqlite database type on RHEL-5.
Comment 2 Martin Stransky 2013-12-02 08:51:47 EST
So we don't need that for RHEL5, right?
